Rachel Maddow Boozes It Up

For a booze expert you think Maddow would be, well, for lack of a better word, more of a drunk. For some reason she strikes me as a pretty clean cut sobering sober. But what do I know. New York Magazine visits Maddow in the Air America studios for a lesson in mixology.

Speaking of booze there is a rumor that the New York lez bar, The Catty Shack, has shut down. If any one has any info can you write in and let us know. The Catty Shack was one of just a few lesbian bars in the city. Owner, Brooke Webster, ran the infamous East Village, Meow Mix for years before opening the Catty Shack in 2005.

Re: the Catty Shack

Re: the Catty Shack "Rumor":
The Catty Shack is now being floated around town as an event (by Brooke Webster) while she raises money to mount her legal battles to get back the space(?)
But the space is still open on the weekends with dj-played music. It's still a lez bar, just going to be under new management.

Love some Rachel... but just

Love some Rachel... but just had to comment on the CattyShack "rumor."
The true owner of CattyShack (not Brooke Webster) was forced to close the venue after it was losing money for some time. At various points over the last year, Brooke Webster tried to keep the venue open by using money given to her by trusted friends as an investment in a separate business venture. That venture (CoffeeShack) failed after the landlords evicted her and she failed to ever notify her investors of the outcome and ignored summons to defend herself. While we definitely have a shortage of lesbian venues and entrepreneurs, I would strongly advise against supporting Brooke's newest attempts to take any more money from the Community she claims to support.

Rachel has the amazing ability to be a geek and be absolutely entertaining at the same time. She makes trivia about the history and methodology of a cocktail seem completely fascinating. Love it!

Silly in love. lol

Silly in love. lol Personally, I like the shaking part. Energetic! Until it hurts, and then, just a little more. And that "shot glass"? That is no femmie little thing either.

Off topic: I'm watching Lucky Thirteen, but I missed the first few minutes. I'm beginning to worry that was the best part.

While I can't speak for Catty

While I can't speak for Catty Shack, there are exciting things in the works for RubyFruit! The whole place is being remodled into the RF Lounge, open all day--internet cafe/coffee shop during the day, then tapas bar in the evening, then dancing all night!

I think I'm falling in love

I think I'm falling in love with Rachel more and more. It is funny when she started being talked about more and more I had no idea who she was. Then I caught her on her new show and that was it. Love it.
